A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) passenger plane, with an estimated 98 people onboard, crashed in Karachi's Model Colony near Jinnah International Airport earlier today.

As news of the crash along with videos and images, started circulating on social media, a rumour also started spreading that celeb couple Ayeza Khan and Danish Taimoor were on PK 8303.

However, the two were quick to rubbish the rumours and call out people for blatantly sharing fake news without any verification.

"We are safe and at our home," confirmed Danish Taimoor.

"May Allah grant an eternal peace to the departed souls and strength and patience to bereaved families to bear this irreparable loss."
